Alpha Sigma Alpha is proud to partner with the Department of Labor Women’s Bureau’s Wi$eUp campaign program. The program, in support of the Department of the Labor’s Strengthening the Family Initiative, is designed to educate young women on the importance of financial health and stability.
Alpha Sigma Alpha teaches the importance of financial stability. With the Wi$eUp program, Alpha Sigma Alpha women are provided with the tools and skills needed to create a secure financial future. The tools in Wi$eUp allow women to set goals to achieve their financial dreams as well as increase their ability to make financial decisions that support their lifetime goals.
Alpha Sigma Alpha utilizes the program to encourage those members on the brink of graduation to create stable financial plans for their future. The program curriculum is customized to fit the specific lifestyle and needs of every member. Wi$eUp is offered to members of Alpha Sigma Alpha online, as well as in classroom settings.
